Updating Old Version
Pushing through with older versions of Wordpress whilst ignoring the updates. Sometimes it’s hard to remember updating to new versions of Wordpress. New version is being updated when bugs are found on the current version. If you are still using the older version, you can expect your site to be very vulnerable to these problems.

Keeping admin as username is probably the most common mistake that’s being done still by lots of people. Wordpress makes the admin as a default username and gives it to the user the administrator level. This username is very much predictable and would increase the change of your site getting hacked. Especially when you choose this username with poor password, you will just attract hackers to visit your site.
Categories and Tags
Another one common mistake is adding more categories with fewer tags. This is a huge mistake; you can only add categories to the main navigation interface. You do it by going through the appearance>menu>screen options> and turn on the posts and tags. Proper organization and planning is very much important to make your site a lot better. You should also take some more time to think about and evaluate the content of your website.
